Born in Collingwood, Ontario in 1989, it was apparent from a young age that Stephanie had a vast imagination and enjoyed telling stories.
She attended the Toronto Film School in 2007 with aspirations of starting a career in film, but found herself drawn to writing in her fourth term.
In the fall of 2010, she self-published her first novel under the pen name of Stephanie O'Hanlon.
In the fall of 2012, she was accepted for publication by an independent publisher, who also re-released her first novel.
Sadly, the publisher closed its doors in 2017 and the rights to her novels were returned to her, which brought her to self-publish The Beast of Bradley Downs on Kindle Direct Publishing in 2019 under her birth name of Douglas.
Following the success of that endeavour, she published her next novel, Summoned: A Battle With Darkness on KDP as well.
She also writes under the pen name of Annabel Allan, which has given her the opportunity for her next novel, urban fantasy/paranormal romance Fright Club, first in the Bite Scene series, to be picked up by Black Velvet Seductions. It is due to be released in 2021.
Stephanie lives in the GTA of Ontario, Canada with her three beloved Ragdoll cats, Ulalume, Vincent (Binks), and Edgar.
